A couple of days back, it was reported that Director Shankar was issued a non- bailable warrant by the Madras High Court, in the case relating to the alleged plagiarism of the film Enthiran. It was also reported that the actor and his advocate failed to appear before the court during the hearing of the case. Now, the director has issued a statement saying that the news about his non bailable warrant was a baseless allegation.

His statement read, "My advocate Mr Sai Kumaran has approached the Honourable Court today and brought this to the Court's attention. The Learned Judge was pleased to immediately confirm that no warrant has apparently occurred due to a glitch in the online court reporting, which is presently being corrected. I am very surprised to see such false news being circulated without any verification, and the same has caused needless anguish to my family and well-wishers. I request this clarification will be carried by all media to ensure that such false news does not spread any further."

Director Shankar's sci-fi film Enthiran with Superstar Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was released in 2010. One Arur Tamilnadan, a short story writer alleged that the story of the film was copied from his short story titled Jiguba, which was published in 1996. It has been a decade since the case started and the court even dismissed Shankar’s plea to quash the case.
